Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS - Tim Slater

ALDI Aus­tralia will open a new gro­cery store at Bel­mont Fo­rum on June 8.

The store is one of the first four that the dis­count su­per­mar­ket chain will open in WA as part of its con­tin­ued ex­pan­sion in Aus­tralia.

The Bel­mont store will pro­vide an ev­ery­day gro­cery range of about 1350 prod­ucts, with 90 per cent be­ing pri­vate la­bel and most- ly sourced from Aus­tralian man­u­fac­tur­ers.

“Aldi Bel­mont will of­fer a con­ve­nient way for lo­cal res­i­dents to shop for high qual­ity prod­ucts at per­ma­nently low prices,” a com­pany spokesper­son said.

“We know there is a strong ap­petite among lo­cal res­i­dents for an al­ter­na­tive place to shop and we look for­ward to wel­com­ing them into our new store from Wed­nes­day, June 8.”

Aldi Bel­mont will cover an area of 1500sq m with 1000sq m of re­tail space.

The spokesper­son said it would pro­vide jobs for 15 to 20 staff.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Damien Schei­del said it was an ex­cit­ing time for the Aldi busi­ness and for WA shop­pers.

“We are ea­ger to show them the dif­fer­ence Aldi can make to both their wal­lets and their life­styles,” Mr Schei­del said.

The other three stores open­ing in June will be at Mirra­booka, Kwinana and Joon­dalup.

Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group has also re­ported that more Aldi stores were ex­pected to open this year at Wat­tle Grove, Har­ris­dale, El­len­brook, Mor­ley, South Lake, Man­durah and more.

Con­struc­tion is un­der way at But­ler, while a Cur­ram­bine lo­ca­tion is get­ting closer to be­ing con­firmed.

The long-term ex­pan­sion plans in­clude the cre­ation of 1200 new per­ma­nent jobs across the state.
